Configuring Code Style

On this page:

Basics and definitions

If certain coding guidelines exist in a company, one has to follow these guidelines when creating source code. MPS helps maintain the required code style.

Code styles are defined at the project level and at the IDE level (global).

  • At the Project level, settings are grouped under the Project scheme, which is predefined and is marked in bold. The Project style scheme is applied to the current project only.

    You can copy the Project scheme to the IDE level, using the Copy to IDE... command.

  • At the IDE level, settings are grouped under the predefined Default scheme (marked in bold), and any other scheme created by the user by the Duplicate command (marked as plain text). Global settings are used when the user doesn't want to keep code style settings with the project and share them.

    You can copy the IDE scheme to the current project, using the Copy to Project... command.

  2. Choose the code style scheme to be used as the base for your custom coding style for the selected language.
